Fresh Banana Pancakes with Vv's Coconut Syrup

Every Sunday when we head into the kitchen for breakfast, I would ask the kids what they want for breakfast. This morning, there was a resounding BANANA vote. So I had one ingredient down.

After looking at the bunch of bananas on the counter and the items in the pantry, I decided it was going to be banana pancakes. The coconut sauce idea came when I looked into the fridge and decided to use up the remaining coconut milk. I had made these in the past, and the kids loved it. This morning I sat down with my honey ginger tea and watch them chow down their pancakes. One meal down for the day... :)
